Congress

Intelligent Life


Pentagon officials testified before a House subcommittee on Tuesday about unidentified flying objects or as some prefer, unidentified aerial phenomenons. We have been conditioned that anytime we hear the term “UFO,” we think of aliens from outer space. But the “U” is for “unidentified.” In case you’re a Republican, yes. “Unidentified” begins with a “U.” Just because something is unidentifiable doesn’t mean it’s not from this planet.

It’s not that I don’t believe there’s life in the universe other than our planet. In fact, I think it would be very arrogant to believe we are the only life or that the universe revolves around us. And if we ever do prove there’s life out there, it’ll definitely prove that a god does not exist. How arrogant is it to believe that a supreme being started life in the universe here on our blue ball? Religion teaches us that the entire universe does revolve around planet Earth.

I’m a bit of a geek. I like a lot of science fiction. I love the idea there’s a galaxy like Star Wars where there are civilizations of various sentient life forms throughout the galaxy, and we can all travel from one planet to the next as easily as going from New York to Idaho, hypothetically. The only people who seem to be going to Idaho lately are racist gun-humpers looking to join a white nationalist militia. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s a place called Knowhere that’s the head of a deceased celestial and the home of the Collector’s museum where he keeps all his stuff collected from across the galaxy, like a dog. It’s a horrible place and Starlord says it sucks, and he’s from Earth. Maybe Idaho is one of our Knowheres…or maybe it’s our entire planet.

My one fear of discovering life outside this planet is that it will all be like Star Trek and just bore us all the fuck to death.

I’m not just open to the possibility of life beyond our planet, I’m certain of it. I think it’s implausible for there not to be life somewhere else. That doesn’t mean there are colonies, cities, or angry beings salivating to conquer us. For all we know, it’s just amoebas. but there is probably life somewhere. What I don’t believe is that we’re being visited. Sorry, kids.

I love science fiction but it’s science fact I believe in. Our Earthly science tells me we’re not being visited. If you are planning a trip to Pluto and have a spaceship that travels 590 miles per hour, it would take you about 680 years to get there. Maybe you have NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft. It only took that thing nine and a half years to reach Pluto. Even then, they needed a push from Jupiter’s gravity. I read.

For alien life to come to our planet, they would have to have technology we can’t even imagine yet, but science does change as we learn more. So to come here, Aliens would have to have the tech and the desire. It would require a reason to visit us despite the time involved…and probably expense. Just how tasty is our flesh to aliens? Maybe they’ll fly a million light-years with a push from Jupiter for Popeye’s spicy chicken sandwich. They better call first. And quite frankly, that might be the best reason to come here.

When aliens land in most movies, they land in the USA. Though there was that one time, in “District 9,” where they landed in South Africa, which has to be way worse than landing in the United States. In that case, we never find out they came and it seems their ship broke down over Johannesburg, which for us would be like your car breaking down on a road through trip Indiana. In “District 9,” these higher beings of intelligence really like cat food, the moist kind in cans. None of that dry shit. Your cat’s right. Canned cat food is also the best dining experience you might find in Indiana.

But they usually land here and only occasionally is it because we’re the location of the United Nations. And have you been to that neighborhood? Eh, it’s alright. There are no Subway stations near it, the view is of Queens, and it’s across the street from Trump World Tower. Even New Yorkers don’t go to that neighborhood. In the remake of “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” the alien landed in Central Park at night. Intelligent life would not do that. Also, this intelligent life was Ted from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Disappointed.

The one thing “The Day the Earth Stood Still” got right is that as soon as the alien stepped outside his ship, we shot him. And that was in New York City. If Klaatu landed in Alabama, he’d be lucky if he only got shot. That alien got himself a perty mouth.

Dear aliens, avoid dueling-banjo states.

Immigrants from south of our border are limited with their options. It’s hard to swim to Holland, so they just walk north. But if you’re in a vehicle that can travel across the universe at light speed, you have more options than a pair of Adidas knock-offs will give you. Why would you land in the USA when you can go to France, Germany, or any of the Scandinavian nations everyone raves about. The top ten nations on this planet that have been rated the happiest are all in western Europe and Scandinavia. We’re rated the 19th happiest. Put that on a travel poster. Come to America, where you’re only kinda likely to get shot by a white supremacist with an assault rifle he bought legally, and if you get raped, you’re gonna have that baby. But, you can super-size your combo meals in America.

And we should be grateful for a 19 rating. Half the nation hates the other half. Our infant mortality rate is ridiculous. We’re in the process of denying women rights over their own bodies. We’re the mass-shooting capital of the planet. We’re in the process of making it illegal to vote if you’re black, which will soon join the illegality of walking while black. The majority of this nation consists of religious fundamentalists. The governor of our third-most populous state is in a feud with a cartoon mouse. We only recently figured out that gay people deserve the same rights as heterosexuals, though they’re trying to change that in yee-haw states. We’re outlawing teaching our racist history. We put immigrant children into baby cages. We made an orange racist Oompa-Loompa reality TV host the president (sic) or our nation. Our Chinese food isn’t really Chinese. Every streaming service is raising its prices to deliver the most popular movies from 2009. Two Broke Girls lasted for six seasons while Arrested Development only lasted for three (initially). Someone in this nation thought Train’s “Soul Sister” was a good idea. McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish still only comes with half a slice of cheese. There are still people in this nation putting ketchup on hotdogs. And have you heard of KFC’s Double Down sandwich? That thing alone makes me want to move to France.

And, we are so stupid that when a planet-killing virus spreads across the planet, half the people think aquarium cleaner and bleach are a cure while refusing to wear face masks because they believe it’s a socialist attack on their freedom.

On top of all that, the people we’ve chosen so wisely to lead us consist of Rick Scott, Ron Johnson, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Matt Gaetz, Ron DeSantis, Rand Paul, Marsha Blackburn, Josh Hawley, Tommy Tuberville, Tom Cotton, Marco Rubio, Cindy Hyde-Smith, Lindsey Graham, Marsha Blackburn, and Ted Cruz. I seriously doubt intelligent life from another planet wants to talk to any of these fuckos, but if they’re into anal probing, I suggest each of them as candidates. We’re talking about miles of ass here. In fact, aliens, go ahead and keep them.

The rest of the world can be ugly too. We kill our most beautiful and amazing creatures (we’re running out of rhinos and they’re awesome). We kill each other. Have you heard what’s happening in Ukraine? The most horrible vile people are in charge of places like North Korea, Belarus, and Saudi Arabia. There’s still an active slave trade on this planet. We’re destroying the planet’s climate. North Korea is threatening to nuke us and South Korea gave us “Baby Shark.” Canada inflicted the globe with Nickelback and poutine (what the fuck is a cheese curd? What’s wrong with cheese that you feel you need to curd it?). Nations argue with each other over who has more right to reject immigrants. Also, I think some people in Europe are starting to put ketchup on hotdogs.

Aliens aren’t coming here because of our intelligence and they don’t want our oil as that’s going to run out. But if they’re coming here, it’s because they want something. Maybe they want our water. Maybe they want to view our wildlife as we do have amazing creatures. Maybe ant aliens want us to enslave us to work in their sugar mines (Hail ants). Maybe they want to convert us to their alien religion.

All the people who claim they were abducted by space aliens are in places like Hooterville, Georgia. And if aliens do abduct from Hooterville and they latch onto Marjorie Taylor Greene to study…they’re not coming back…

…unless she’s delicious.

Chastity Susie


Republican Senator Susan Collins was the final vote needed to confirm accused sexual assaulter and crying angry beer lover Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court where he will sit for the rest of his life casting votes to destroy human rights.

At the time of Kavanaugh’s vote in 2018, the Republicans held a slight majority in the Senate. Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court by a 50-48 vote. Republican Steve Daines was absent and didn’t vote. Republican Lisa Murkowski noted her opposition to Kavanaugh and voted “present” which is saying “I’m here but I’m not going to do a fucking thing about it.” Democrat Joe Manchin voted to confirm Kavanaugh. Susan Collins voted to confirm.

Leading up to the vote, Senator Collins, who is pro-choice, expressed concern that Kavanaugh would vote to eliminate a woman’s right to choose. Collins said his opinion about whether Roe v. Wade set a precedent would influence her decision about whether to back his nomination, so she met with him in her office to discuss the issue. She came out of that meeting saying she was satisfied with his answers about abortion rights and he assured her that the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling protecting a woman’s right to an abortion is “settled law.”

Then, Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined four other justices and voted to eliminate the precedent and settled law of Roe v. Wade and destroy a woman’s right to choose.

Now, is Senator Collins lying about what Kavanaugh told her, or did Kavanaugh lie to the Senator?

During a speech to the Senate, Collins said, “When I asked him would it be sufficient to overturn a long-established precedent if five current justices believed it was wrongly decided, he emphatically said ‘no.'” During his confirmation hearings, he said repeatedly that Roe had been upheld by Planned Parenthood v. Casey, describing it as “precedent on precedent.” So based upon the words that we all heard, I believe Kavanaugh went into Senator Susan Collin’s office, looked her in the eye, and lied his beer-swilling rapey balls off.

And it’s not just Kavanaugh. Justices Clarence Thomas, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Clarence Thomas each said during their confirmation hearings that Roe v. Wade was “precedent.” They’re all liars and would have said anything to reach confirmation.

And, if Kavanaugh lied saying he’d never vote to eliminate women’s rights, then he probably lied about trying to rape Christine Blasey Ford. Brett Kavanaugh is a liar and we know this. But we knew this before he was confirmed, so why didn’t Senator Susan Collins also know this?

I mean, it’s not like we didn’t tell Susan Collins that a rapey right-wing beer-loving crying Trump nominee couldn’t be trusted. She didn’t listen to us. She listened to the liar and trusted him. She was bamboozled and because of that, abortion rights will be destroyed in at least 26 states.

I also question the voters of Maine who had an opportunity to dump Collins in 2020, but let her hang on to her job. Did Maine just set Collins up to be lied to again and confirm more lying religious zealots to the Supreme Court?

I don’t believe Collins is a stupid person like several of her Republican colleagues in the Senate, but I do think she’s naive. She’s too naive to be a United States Senator. Go home, Susan.

What we need now is another woman’s movement like we saw in 2018 when they came out and delivered the House to the Democratic Party. We need women now more than ever. Don’t be naive like Susan Collins and fall for all the lies Republicans are telling you. Don’t cast your vote based on the Critical Race Theory lies Virginia voters fell for in 2021. Don’t vote on the DeSantis lies that schools are teaching elementary students a gay curriculum. Vote on abortion. Vote angry, like you did against the Trump administration (sic) in 2018.

Women, vote on abortion like the right to choose depends on it…because it does. This isn’t hyperbole. And it doesn’t matter what Republican candidates tell you because we know they lie. What do they do? They lie. They lie. They lie. And then, they lie some more. If any one of them tells you they will not work to make abortion illegal nationally (because if they get control of Congress, they can do that), they’re lying.

The Supreme Court sent abortion to the states because the word “abortion” is not in the Constitution. Neither is the word “woman.” Now, Republicans can ban abortion nationally. This is what they’ve been trying to do for 48 years. Don’t think they won’t do it. This is why Mitch McConnell stole SCOTUS seats. This is why Mitch McConnell lowered the vote requirement from 60 to 50 for SCOTUS confirmations. This is why so many Republicans supported Donald Trump before they even became a cult. They would take any opportunity and under any condition to destroy abortion rights, including lying.

If Vladimir Putin had put a lying orange-stained chimpanzee with a weave and its head stuck permanently up its ass but would nominate abortion-killing zealot judges, Republicans would have said, “Heil monkey.” They will do anything to destroy women’s rights.

You need to vote in this year’s midterms. President Trump and Donald Trump are not on the ballot, but abortion is.

The word “abortion” may not be in the Constitution, but it’s on your ballot. Vote.

Mr. Zelensky Goes To Washington


As Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky virtually addressed Congress today, I wondered, “What did they do with Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, and Madison Cawthorn? For that matter, how dare any member of the Republican Party attend who had refused to impeach Donald Trump for his attempt to extort the Ukrainian president.

During President Biden’s State of the Union address to Congress, Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene heckled and cackled like mean girls throughout his speech. In order not to risk further embarrassment to his party, or even worse, the nation, did Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy lock them in the congressional basement? There’s no real reason for the most ridiculous members of Congress to attend anyway since none of them have ever expressed any interest in doing their jobs. Did Marco Rubio tweet a selfie with Zelensky on the monitor behind him to show he’s not a ridiculous individual?

Did pro-Russian flunkies Jim Jordan and Devin Nunes attend? Maybe Vladimir Putin could have given the Republican response.

The Republican Party refused to punish Donald Trump for the crime of trying to extort a foreign president, which he did by withholding military aid funded by Congress until Zelensky gave him the political dirt he wanted. This was aid intended to protect Ukraine from a Russian invasion. This was a crime yet the entire Republican Party refused to take it seriously and instead, made excuses for their corrupt leader. It’s illegal for a political campaign to receive donations from a foreigner, especially a foreign government.

Republicans are still claiming it’s a hoax that Russia helped Donald Trump, yet there’s a recording they ignore of him explicitly asking a foreign government to dig up dirt on a political opponent.

Now, the same goons who were OK with Trump’s extortion attempt are all wearing stern and serious-looking faces while they talk about creating a no-fly zone over Ukraine and other means to support that nation. They should have taken it seriously when Trump used military aid to grift Volodymyr Zelensky instead of wasting the past two years repeating Rudy Giuliani’s ridiculous crap about Hunter Biden and his laptop. Hey, why doesn’t Rudy go to Ukraine now to continue his investigation into Hunter Biden? No? Why not?

President Zelensky thanked the U.S. for its assistance but pleaded for more. He compared Russia’s assault on the Ukrainian people to the attack on Pearl Harbor and said it was like a daily 9/11. He played a graphic video of Russia’s assault on the Ukrainian civilian population, including the attacks on children.

Yesterday, President Biden signed into law a bill that includes $13.6 billion for assistance to Ukraine. After Zelensky’s speech, he announced an additional $800 million to support Ukraine’s defense against Russia.

As much as we would like to help Ukraine, we still can’t get involved in the fighting. A military conflict between the United States and Russia, as inept of a military as they are, will widen the war into a much larger conflict that would involve even more nations. A war between the U.S. and Russia could eventually lead to nuclear warfare as Vladimir Putin may be unstable. Do you want to play a game? A no-fly zone over Ukraine enforced by NATO takes us from hyperboles about World War III to a very real possibility of U.S. and NATO jets shooting down Russian jets.

The Republican Party didn’t just allow Donald Trump to extort the president of Ukraine. They sat back and watched him try to destroy NATO. If the Republicans had their way, there wouldn’t be a NATO today preventing Putin from extending his war beyond Ukraine.

The GOP is best at being the Party of No, giving empty criticism, creating lies, heckling, taking selfies while giving out classified information, and spreading conspiracy theories. Let’s let the adults figure out how best to help Ukraine.

No Treats With Bannon


CNN10242021

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday. 

Two thing I really like drawing are Steve Bannon and Pumpkins. I just wish Steve Bannon would also only show up once a year. I actually wish the likes of him would never show up, you know…white nationalists, Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Klansmen, Nazis, Texas, Trumpers, Texans…people like that. And, right now, we need Bannon to show up and testify before Congress. Maybe what the January 6 Committee should do is tell Steve Bannon they don’t want to hear from them. Then, he’ll be there and he’ll never stop talking.

As for how things stand, I’m very comfortable with the fact Steve Bannon may go to prison. I hear there are a lot of Nazis in prison, so he’ll be fine. He has friends.

As I posted above, this cartoon is for CNN. But I wanted to draw another Bannon/Halloween cartoon for my clients and I just finished it. I’ll blog it soon, but let me get this one out first.

Texas Being Texas


Cjones10272021

It’s bad enough Texas is going to continue to gerrymander its congressional districts, but it’s even worse they’re stealing it from minority voters.

Texas has gained two new seats in Congress thanks to its population growth…of non-white people. What will Texas do with these two new seats gained from a population explosion from over the past decade, half of which is from Latinos? Gerrymander the fuck out of them to make sure they’re both seated by white Republicans.

Texas isn’t the only red state adding to its congressional delegation, Florida, North Carolina, and Montana are each gaining one new seat each. Blue states losing seats are California (losing two), New York (losing one because people wouldn’t answer the census), and Michigan, Illinois, and Pennsylvania (one each). West Virginia and Ohio, both states that went for Trump, are losing one each while liberal Oregon and Colorado are both gaining one apiece. Red states are coming out ahead, but not because there are more Republicans.

These new seats arrive at a horrible time for minorities and people who aren’t fucknuts as this is the first time Texas can redistrict without oversight from the Department of Justice. For years, southern states needed the Justice Department to approve redistricting because in the past, well, they were pretty racist with it. Now that they don’t need federal oversight making sure they’re not a bunch of racist fucks anymore, they get to going back to racist gerrymandering like racist fucks. Who made this possible? A conservative-majority Supreme Court did in 2013.

Texas will use its population growth, thanks in large parts to Latinos, to increase Republican representation. Texas is on its way to becoming a blue state as the non-white population outnumbers the white. But just like Republicans nationwide, Texas plans to cheat.

Not only will Texas gerrymander these districts to make sure white people have and gain the most representation, they’re doing everything they can to make it harder for non-white people to vote. This will help keep a conservative Supreme Court even when the majority of the nation is voting liberal.

Florida’s new seat is made possible by a large increase in its Puerto Rican population. What will the Republicans, who control the state, do with this new seat? They’ll draw new congressional district map that look more like a Jackson Pollock painting than any region of the state, and give it to white voters.

Republicans cheat and lie. They steal votes, they steal Supreme Court seats, they steal legislative districts, and they steal congressional districts.

People, and I’m looking at you Virginia, you have to vote and you have to answer your census. Because Republicans do.

Spearing Sinema


Cjones10042021

As Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema was walking through the halls of Congress, a reporter asked her where she stands on President Joe Biden’s Build-Back-Better plan, which she has been holding up with West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. Sinema, who didn’t break her speed to get away from the reporters, replied, “I stand in the Senate.” I hate to be harsh, Senator Sinema, but that was the type of answer we’d expect from Martha McSally.

While she was one of Arizona’s appointed senators, Martha McSally verbally attacked CNN’s Manu Raju when he asked her about Trump’s impeachment. Without pausing while walking through the halls of Congress, she snapped, “You’re a liberal hack.” That was just one of a lot of reasons to get rid of Martha McSally, and that’s exactly what Arizona did.

I’m sure everyone who voted to oust McSally don’t regret doing so, but many are having regrets with whom they chose to replace her, Kyrsten Sinema.

Correction: Nobody alerted me to this. I caught it while talking to a friend about when Sinema’s term ends. Sinema did defeat Martha McSally to replace retiring Senator Jeff Flake in 2018. Sinema did not replace McSally in the Senate. This is where it can get confusing. McSally was appointed to the Senate AFTER she lost to Sinema. McSally was appointed to fill the seat opened by the death of Senator John McCain. It was astronaut Mark Kelly who defeated McSally in 2020. Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.

I thought Representative Ilhan Omar was being a little too harsh and unfair to Senators Sinema and Manchin, who have recently been dubbed “Manchinema.” Omar called her Democratic counterparts in the Senate something worse than “Manchinema.” She called them “Republicans.” Ooh. That’s brutal. But, when you hear why Manchinema are upholding the Biden agenda, they do sound like Republicans.

Why are they holding up the $3.5 trillion Build-Back-Better plan? Nobody really knows. They’re in negotiations but it’s hard to negotiate with people who don’t tell you what they’re negotiating for. Even kidnappers and terrorists are explicit with their demands.

Sinema is being less rational then kidnappers, terrorists, and even Republicans.

A lot of Sinema’s supporters in Arizona feel betrayed by her. Duplicating John McCain’s thumbs-down to save Obamacare, she famously gave a thumbs-down on the floor of the Senate voting against a federal hike of the minimum wage to $15. Then, a photo was taken of her sipping some fruity drink while wearing a matching hat for the drink, big loopy earrings, and a ring with the words, “Fuck off.” The people who sent her campaign money, walked sidewalks handing out fliers, and knocking on doors to make her a United States senator felt she was telling them to “fuck off.”

Jade Duran, an Arizonan who campaigned for Sinema and who’s now been a part of protest outside her Phoenix office, for which she was arrested, said, “It really feels like she does not care about her voters. I will never vote for her again.”

What does Sinema want removed from this bill she claims is too expensive (which it’s not because it won’t add to the deficit)?

Maybe she doesn’t want two years of Universal Pre-K for 3-and 4-year-old children, a program that will serve five million children.

Maybe she doesn’t want paid family leave.

Maybe she doesn’t want Medicare to be able to control prescription drug prices.

Maybe she doesn’t want at-home care for the elderly.

Maybe she doesn’t want to raise taxes for the rich and cut them for the middle class.

Maybe she doesn’t want to invest in green technology.

Maybe she doesn’t want 7.7 million jobs created over the next decade in clean energy.

Maybe she doesn’t want to create $907 billion in economic growth.

Maybe she doesn’t want to provide over $154 billion in tax revenue to local and state governments.

Maybe she doesn’t want an annual tax credit of $3,600 for every child under 6 and $3,000 for every child age 6-18, half of it paid in advance to assist low-income families.

Maybe she doesn’t want the largest anti-poverty program in a half century.

Maybe she doesn’t want to end hunger for children.

We know she doesn’t want to raise the minimum wage to $15. We know she wants the people serving her fruity drinks that match her hat to continue to be underpaid while she tells them to “Fuck off.”

Maybe she wants to run around outside kicking puppies while wearing her fuck-off ring.

Maybe what she wants is to be a Republican. She better be careful because when she runs for reelection, Arizona might tell her to fuck off.

Stab Back Better


Cjones09262021

President Joe Biden’s agenda is ambitious. In fact, his Build Back Better Act is historic. It doesn’t just take the country into a more liberal direction. He’s trying to take the nation into a progressive one. And I don’t mean progressive as in liberal, I mean progressive as in progress. He’s trying to move the nation forward. Actually, improving this nation and looking toward the future is liberal, like facts and science. Hey, we didn’t make those things liberal. Republicans did.

This $3.5 trillion spending plan invests in green technology. That’s sensible…which has become liberal. Fossil fuels will not last forever. And here’s a fun fact: We are not going to be here forever. How about we leave something for the coming generations? Burning the planet down now for political expediency and profit is selfish.

This spending plan includes universal pre-K, paid family leave, price controls on prescription drugs, a child allowance, and at-home care for the elderly. It increases taxes (not enough) on the rich. And, it cuts taxes for the bottom 90 percent. Republicans won’t tell you that. In fact, Republicans are saying he’s increasing everyone’s taxes while also banning cheeseburgers. This is because Republicans lie.

The Build Back Better Act is divided into three parts. The first, The American Rescue Plan, has already been passed. What, you didn’t know that? You should because you cashed your check. The first part was a $1.9 trillion COVID relief package. Biden’s approval is currently at 43 percent which proves we forget shit quickly.

The next part is the American Jobs Plan, but that’s being pushed aside, even with a Senate compromise having been reached, because Democrats in the House want to pass the American Families Plan first.

This is wonky stuff and a lot of it’s hard to understand. I’m not including all of it because, dammit, it’s hard and I want to go outside and play. But, I did do a lot of reading for you, so buckle up and let’s go.

Two environmental groups released a study saying this plan will generate 7.7 million jobs over the next decade in clean energy, create $907 billion in economic growth, and provide over $154 billion in tax revenue to local and state governments. That’s liberal and conservative. It’s saving the planet and increasing revenue for the government which may balance budgets and never mind. Republicans don’t actually care about increasing government revenue and balancing budgets, so this part is all liberal. Republicans would rather go all Thanos and snap fingers and destroy shit.

The $3.5 trillion won’t be spent in one night, or even in one year. You don’t hear this part a lot, do you? It’ll be spent over the next decade and only accounts to a five percent increase in the federal budget. You probably weren’t told that part either. But, this bill isn’t going to make it intact to Biden’s desk for his signature. It’ll probably be a trillion cheaper. That means we get less stuff. This is thanks to assholes.

The blocks to passing this don’t just include Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. There are at least a dozen House Democrats in the way. They objected to President Biden’s proposal to raise the top tax rate on capital gains to 39.6 percent. They also refused to close loopholes that allow hedge-fund managers to pay less in taxes than teachers. These are Democrats? Trust me on this: None of these rich people will be sent to the poor house over this. They pay people to figure out how they can get out of paying higher taxes. They’ll just have pretend poor houses.

The same Democrats who are obstructing this bill have removed a provision that would allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices, something that even 77 percent of Republicans support. Hell, Donald Trump even pretended to support it for a minute. How does anyone run and get elected on making prescription drugs more expensive?

Seventeen Nobel Prize winners in economics have come out in support of the $3.5 trillion package. They think it’s a great idea to help pay for it by increasing taxes on the rich by $2.9 trillion.

Joe Manchin, being the buzz-killing wet sponge that he is, is blocking passage of this unless it’s scraped down to $1.5 trillion. Kyrsten Sinema is also refusing on the price. Why are they Democrats if they don’t want to tax the rich? Let’s look at some of the good stuff they’re preventing with their obstruction.

They are stopping an annual tax credit of $3,600 for every child under 6 and $3,000 for every child age 6-18, half of it paid in advance to assist low-income families. And unlike tax cuts for billionaire assholes, these tax credits will expire in a decade.

They’re stopping the largest anti-poverty program in a half century that is likely to reduce child poverty in the United States by 40 percent-50 percent. Maybe someone should tell West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin which states have the most poverty. Twelve of the top 13 states in poverty are red states. Go figure.

They’re stopping two years of Universal Pre-K for 3- and 4-year-old children, a program that will serve five million children. They’re stopping feeding these children. Free child care puts more women into the workforce. This fact is so factual, you don’t even need a study to prove. It’s like Trump and a small penis. You don’t need to see it to know it.

They’re stopping free tuition for all students at community colleges. Free tuition will increase enrollment in community colleges by 26 percent, and graduation by 20 percent, which Republicans don’t like because educated people don’t vote for racist morons. Look at those poverty red states. You would think that being in poverty would make a person stop voting for politicians who give bailouts to rich assholes and assholes who give themselves bailouts, but they’re uneducated. I’m a huge fan of free community college.

They’re stopping dental, vision, and hearing benefits to Medicare recipients. I ask again, how do you campaign and elected by hating on Medicare? At least Republicans are quiet about it while taking money from it to give to the rich and build racist border walls.

They’re stopping twelve weeks of paid family and medical leave for working men and women. Think of paid-family leave as bailouts for businesses, because that’s who’s benefitting the most from this. Maybe every Republican in Congress should go back to community college for two years.

They’re stopping a plan that cuts carbon emissions in half within a decade through alternative energy and electric vehicle tax credits; a methane gas fee; funds for rural electricity corporations and agriculture and forestry carbon capture initiatives; payments to utilities that substantially reduce greenhouse gas-emitting electricity sources; and electrification of federal government vehicles and buildings.

Again, to help pay for this, President Biden and AOC’s dress are proposing tax hikes on the rich and corporations. This plan, if it remains intact, will increase capital gains taxes from 20 percent to 25 percent, less than they were between 1945 and 2017. It will define the top bracket as $450,000 for joint filers (your taxes are NOT increasing. Rich people don’t read this blog). It will reduce the exemption for estates to $6,020,000; impose a 26.5 percent tax on corporate income over $5 million; and increase the top bracket personal income tax rate to the pre-2017 rate of 39.6 percent. Does that sound like your taxes are being raised?

Why do Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema want you to continue to pay more taxes than Amazon? Last year, Amazon paid a tax rate of 1.2 percent. What rate were you taxed? In 2018, Amazon had profits of 11 billion, yet paid…wait for it…zero in federal taxes. How much did you pay in 2018? Why do Manchin and Sinema want this to continue?

Biden’s plan would raise about $2.1 trillion in revenues between 2022 and 2031 (the period covered by Build Back Better). Experts say tax credits will boost the income of the bottom quintile of income earners by 14.5 percent in 2022; the top one percent will experience a five percent decline in after-tax income.

And yes, I copied and pasted a lot of that. You think I know what “quintile” means? I just looked it up. I still don’t know what it means.

No Republican in Congress supports this plan but three out of four Americans do. Unfortunately, there are too many Democrats in Congress who don’t.

Joe Biden has spent his first year in his presidency advancing legislation that will actually benefit Americans. By comparison, Donald Trump’s first major legislative act was to give himself a tax cut.

Democrats like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema need to be more like President Joe Biden and less like Donald Trump.

Creepy White Female


Cjones05192021

Nobody ever asks me anymore, “What are you going to draw now that Donald Trump isn’t president (sic)?” Just like there will always be cops because there will always be crime, I will always have material because there will always be right-wing troglodyte abhorrent bullshit.

I had a lot of days where Donald Trump made satire hard. How do you make drinking bleach even more ridiculous? Even with Donald Trump barricaded in his Nazi compound in Nazi Florida, I’m still having days like that thanks to right-wing troglodytes like Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Does it bother you there are people in Congress who are not as smart as you? Does it bother you they’re not just as smart as you…but they’re knuckle-dragging morons who should be put in baby-proofed rooms for their own protection so they don’t stick forks into electrical outlets? There’s a meme on social media that the reason there’s so much ignorance in this country today is because high schools had their football coaches teach civics. That must be true because Alabama senator and former football coach Tommy Tuberville believes World War II was fought to save Europe from socialism and the three branches of our government are the House, Senate, and White House, and that one party isn’t supposed to control all three (despite all three being controlled by Republicans for two years of the Trump administration. Look it up).

Sure, a lot of these fuckers gaslight, like that Andrew Clyde idiot from Georgia who believes terrorists are tourists…even though he helped blockade a door to keep them from barging in. Be careful! They want keychains!

But some of these Republicans aren’t just gaslighting…some of them are downright stupid. And when you add other horrible traits to stupid, like bullying, stalking, pushing conspiracy theories, and advocating murder, you have a raving lunatic on your hands. And that’s what we have in Marjorie Taylor Greene, a representative from Georgia. Seriously, Georgia?

Before Marjorie Taylor Greene was elected to Congress by the most moronic, stupid, right-wing district in the nation, she was just your average everyday qanon conspiracy pushing fucknut.

This lunatic that Donald Trump said is a “future Republican star” and is “strong on everything” believes that school shootings are “false flag operations.” She believes the California wildfires were started by Jewish space lasers. She called the qanon leader who started the conspiracy theory that the government is being controlled by Satan-worshipping pedophiles a “patriot.”

Do you think Greene doesn’t believe in the Qshit? There’s a video of her stating, “There’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it.” This person is in Congress. Seriously.

Greene posted in a blog for dumbasses a link about Pizzagate, the debunked belief Hillary Clinton ran a sex slave operation out of a Washington, D.C. pizza restaurant. She wrote, “Shockingly, the website tells about information that was only whispered about and called conspiracy theories.” She believes this shit.

Greene believes in “Frazzledrip.” Oh, you haven’t heard of that? I hadn’t either until just now. Sit down for this one…and put down the coffee. It’s a belief there’s a video (nobody’s seen) that was found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop of Hillary Clinton and aide Huma Abedin sexually assaulting a child before slicing off her face and wearing it as a mask. She wrote, “Most people honestly don’t know so much. The msm disinformation warfare has won for too long!” Again, this person is in Congress. Also, what does Clinton and Abedin do with the mask after wearing it? Does it become a pizza topping?

She has questioned whether 9/11 actually happened. You would think that one would piss of conservatives, right? Wrong.

Before Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, Greene pushed a belief she had already died and was replaced by a body double.

And of course, she believes Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election. What’s scarier is that the majority of the Republican Party shares that one. Do you really want to share conspiracy theories with a lunatic? But then again, the GOP is comprised of lunatics.

Before she was elected, she videotaped herself stalking David Hogg, a Parkland school shooting survivor. She even made a video (that she later tried to delete), before she was elected, where she’s outside the office of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, crouched down to scream through the mail slot, demanding that she come out, stop pushing socialism, accusing her of wearing a diaper, and that she pays her salary.

Oddly enough, I’m now paying Marjorie Taylor Greene’s salary and she doesn’t even serve on any committees.

While AOC was leaving a congressional hearing last week (something Greene won’t be doing because she doesn’t serve on any committees), she was accosted by Greene who was shouting at her about her “radical socialism” and accusing her of supporting terrorists. Greene and the bulk of the Republican Party literally support terrorists. Her Georgia colleague, Andrew Clyde, defends them as “tourists.”

AOC said Greene was “deeply unwell” and she used to throw people like her out of her bar back when she was a bartender. MTG wants to debate AOC, but there is no winning a debate with a mouth-breathing knuckle-dragger. I can’t see Ocasio-Cortez being able to get a word in during such a debate. If Greene really wants to debate issues, perhaps she shouldn’t have done stupid shit, like calling for the execution of congressional colleagues, that got her kicked off committees.

While leaving the House floor this week, Democratic representative Eric Swalwell was screamed at by one of Greene’s aides (shockingly, she hasn’t hired very good people), who demanded he take off his face mask. This is deeply ironic because conservatives are all over social media demanding that nobody question whether or not they’ve been vaccinated and leave them alone while they skulk around unmasked…yet they’re totally triggered anytime they see someone wearing a face mask.

When you see someone outside your bedroom window with binoculars, they’ll probably be unmasked.

Swalwell said he’d had enough of the “marauding goons in the Marjorie Taylor Greene crowd who go around trying to terrorize my colleagues.” According to reports, Swalwell cursed at Greene’s aides, but I one for believe cursing at someone is acceptable when that someone is a right-wing mouth-breathing troglodyte motherfucker working for a creepy icky stalking sea hag sonofabitch.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others are calling for an investigation of Greene by the House Ethics Committee. It’s very unethical to bully and stalk your colleagues. The bad thing is, Greene has time since she doesn’t serve on any committees, not like she would have done any actual work if she was still on them anyway.

This bullying, stalking, and being as vile as possible works for Greene. Republicans love it. These are the same people who are defending baby jails and MAGA terrorists. Greene has raised millions of dollars by pointing out how vile and disgusting she is.

Congress needs to expel Greene. If her voters don’t like it, then maybe stop sending maniacs to Congress. The rest of Congress, Democrats and Republicans, deserve a safe working environment. But then again, most of the Republicans support terrorists.

While shouting through AOC’s mail slot, Greene said she’s a woman and proud to be an American woman. I’m not sure she’s a woman because first, she would have to be human.

MyManiac

What happened to the Republican Party? They used to claim they were the party of personal responsibility. Now, not so much. It was just two years ago they couldn’t stand to let a member occupy a seat on committees who expressed support for white supremacy. Now? They’ll fight to defend a bigot who believes in crazy conspiracy theories and “liked” calls to murder Congressional Democrats.

Yesterday, freshman Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene defended herself before the House and said she didn’t believe in the crazy stuff she used to peddle. The way she phrased it was, she was “allowed” to believe the Qanon conspiracy.

First off, the Qanon cult is based on the belief there’s a deep state controlling our government of Satanic-worshipping blood-drinking pedophiles, and they’re all Democrats. Their membership consists of politicians and movie stars.

And yesterday, the party of personal responsibility looked the other way when Marjorie Taylor Greene said she was “allowed” to believe so much bullshit. Allowed? As in it’s not her fault? She’s an adult and a member of the United States House of Representatives, not a baby whose parents allowed her to stick forks into electrical outlets.

If I buy into the beleif that all Republicans are troglodyte racists who support terrorists and a president who wants to date his daughter…wait, bad example.

If I buy into the belief that all Republicans are incapable to get humor, sarcasm, and irony…sorry. Another bad example.

If I buy into the belief that all Republicans are greedy and corrupt… Shit.

I got it. If I buy into the belief that all Republicans are ugly (eh), it’s not the fault of the person who sold me that belief. It would be my fault. I’m an adult. I’m capable of looking shit up. There’s probably a Republican somewhere who’s not totally hideous or CHUD-like (C.H.U.D.s. Look it up). Marjorie Taylor Greene is an adult. She has the internet, right? She can use Google. She chose to chase conspiracy theories, and even worse, spread them to other stupid, dumbass hillbilly fucknuts.

Yesterday, Marjorie tried to convince us she’s not responsible for believing shit like pizzagate, the conspiracy theory that Democrats were operating a child-sex ring from the basement of a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor. And she stood on the floor and said 9/11 and school shootings did actually happen. For this, she was praised.

How insane is it that a member of Congress had to say they believed 9/11 and school shootings have happened? You know, I believe the Earth isn’t flat. Give me a medal.

You know what Marjorie Taylor Greene didn’t say?

She didn’t say that a plane flew into the Pentagon which is something she expressed doubt about in the past. She didn’t say the Parkland school shooting happened, which she called a “false flag” operation and went on to stalk and harass survivor David Hogg. She didn’t even say she has stopped believing that Jewish space lasers financed by the Rothschilds were responsible for California wildfires. And, she didn’t say she was sorry.

Republicans claimed she said she was sorry behind closed doors. But when she addressed the entire House and the nation yesterday, she said she had “regrets,” but didn’t apologize. Instead, she blamed the media and Democrats. And the party that tried to cancel Liz Cheney blamed “cancel culture.”

The biggest thing Greene didn’t apologize for or even bring up is her support of comments to murder Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats in the House.

Afterward, the House voted to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committees, specifically the Education Committee. What sort of maniac puts a school shooting denialist and harasser and stalker of school shooting victims on the Education Committee? Kevin McCarthy, that’s who.

And 199 Republicans voted to keep that Qanon stalker on the Education Committee. Only 11 Republicans voted to remove her.

If this vote was confidential, would the GOP have removed her? The thing is, they’re afraid of upsetting the base. Marjorie Taylor Greene has raised an absurd amount of money on the Qanon lies. Minority Leader McCarthy went to Florida to grovel before the cult leader of Q, Donald Trump. The entire party is afraid of the terrorist-supporting base that is Qanon. The GOP is now the party of Qanon.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is not the only supporter and believer of lies and conspiracy theories in Congress. In the House, 147 Republicans voted against certifying the election which was based on the lie that it was stolen. It was the promotion of that lie that fueled the terrorist cult that attacked the U.S. Capitol.

And that’s another thing Greene didn’t mention, her belief in the big stolen election lie. And if you don’t think you fall down rabbit holes with conspiracy theorists and cultists yet believe in the stolen election lie, congratulations. You are Qanon.

The Republican Party is no longer the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Reagan, or even George W. Bush. They are now the party of Qanon. They’re the party of that fucking MyPillow Guy. And if runs for Congress, don’t act surprised.

The Republican Party voted yesterday to be the party of Q.

Cavegirl


cjones02062021

Last night, the Neanderthals that make up the Republican membership in the United States House of Representatives held a vote on whether or not to remove Congresswoman Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, from her leadership position.

Oh my gosh. What did that dastardly Liz do? Did she claim school shootings are fake? Did she claim California wildfires are created by Jewish Space Lasers financed by the Rothschilds? Did she claim JRK Jr was murdered by the Clintons? Did she bully school shooting survivors? Did she claim 9/11 was a hoax and planes did not fly into the Pentagon? Does she believe Democrats are part of a deep state of satanic-worshipping pedophiliac blood drinkers? Did she promote Pizzagate? Did she say Muslims shouldn’t be allowed into Congress? Did she defend the Nazis at Charlottesville? Did she call George Soros a Nazi? Did she promote the big lie that Trump won the election? Did she call for the murder of Congressional colleagues? Is she a supporter of Qanon?

Nope. Liz Cheney didn’t do any of that. All of the above are freshman member and Qanon troglodyte Marjorie Taylor Greene’s positions. For her, the House Republicans gave a standing ovation last night. For Liz, they tried to punish her for a vote she cast.

If anyone’s going to inflict punishment for a vote, it should be a representative’s constituents, not her colleagues. Liz Cheney voted to impeach Donald Trump after he incited a terrorist attack on the very building where House Republicans held their vote to punish Cheney. Donald Trump attempted a bloody coup and House Republicans went after Cheney for standing up against it.

Fortunately, Liz Cheney survived but 61 of her colleagues voted to remove her from her leadership position. Last week, her colleague Matt Gaetz flew to her state, Wyoming, and held an anti-Liz rally. Unfortunately while in Wyoming, Gaetz was not eaten by a bear. Guess where Matt Gaetz didn’t fly to? Georgia, the home district of Marjorie Taylor Greene. In Matt Gaetz’s defense, he’s a lying piece of crap who’s never had integrity. Also in his defense, he’s from Florida.

In fact, the House didn’t even hold a vote on whether or not to remove Greene from her committee assignments, especially her seat on the Education Committee, where she’ll be able to tell educators that school shootings are fake and the children who survived are “crisis actors.” Her seat on the Education Committee is the worst thing to happen to education since Betsy DeVos.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is a coward. After Donald Trump incited a terrorist attack against the U.S. Capitol, McCarthy gave a speech on the floor of the House condemning Trump’s action. Then, he flew to Florida to grovel and kiss Trump’s ass at Mar-a-Lago. Now, he’s refusing to do anything about Marjorie Taylor Greene. It probably didn’t hurt her when she said she just got off the phone with Donald Trump.

In the last session of Congress, House Republicans removed Congressman Steve King from all his committee assignments after he openly questioned why “white nationalism” and “white supremacy” were considered bad thing. Now, they’re too cowardly to do something about Greene who has gone beyond expressing bigotry.

Kevin McCarthy and nearly the entire GOP are running scared of Qanon, a group that was a large part of the terrorist attack on the Capitol…an attack that could have killed many of these same Republicans. On Tuesday night, Office Brian Sicknick lay in state in the Capitol because he was killed by terrorists during that attack. Brian Sicknick died defending those Republicans who won’t stand up against the terrorists who killed him. The FBI lists Qanon as a terrorist threat. But Republicans, they’re pandering to this terrorist base.

Qanon is a sickness. It’s a cult. It’s a movement of conspiracy theories and violence. Senate Minority Leader (HAHA) Mitch McConnell called Qanon a “cancer.” The leader of House Republicans, Kevin McCarthy, said he didn’t know what Qanon was or if he was even pronouncing it correctly. Kevin McCarthy is actually slower than Mitch McTortoise McConnell.

Kevin McCarthy had a two-hour one-on-one meeting with Marjorie Taylor Greene about her comments and support of Qanon theories. If he doesn’t know what Qanon is, then what did they spend two hours talking about?

Kevin McCarthy is a sniveling coward. He won’t take action against Marjorie Taylor Greene and won’t even require her to publicly renounce Qanon in order to keep her committee assignments. Today, House Democrats will vote to remove her from those committees. Today, we’ll find out which Republicans support terrorists.

Spoiler alert: It’s going to be a lot of them.

Kevin McCarthy is a coward and he’s allowing a Neanderthal to pull him around by his hair. He’s not a leader. Marjorie Taylor Greene isn’t the only Republican who should be removed from Congress.
